• Multi-context architectures of neuro-symbolic AI systems for Mental Health

    Project ID: STAI-CDT-2023-KCL-15
    Themes: Argumentation
    Supervisor: Hector Menendez, Dr Mariana Pinto da Costa

    Mental care systems require patient assessment and diagnosis. Thus, creating a reliable artificial intelligence that provides a mental state examination (MSE) requires proper verification that guarantees accuracy and...

  • Explainability of Agent-based Models as a Tool for Validation and Exploration

    Project ID: STAI-CDT-2023-KCL-11
    Themes: Argumentation, Verification
    Supervisor: Dr Steffen Zschaler, Dr Katie Bentley

    Agent-based models (ABMs) are an AI technique to help improve our understanding of complex real-world interactions and their “emergent behaviours”. ABMs are used to develop and test theories or to explore how interventions...

  • Computational Social Choice and Machine Learning for Ethical Decision Making

    Project ID: STAI-CDT-2023-KCL-5
    Themes: AI Planning, Argumentation, Norms, Reasoning
    Supervisor: Maria Polukarov

    The problem of ethical decision making presents a grand challenge for modern AI research. Arguably, the main obstacle to automating ethical decisions is the lack of a formal specification of ground-truth ethical principles,...
